Spicy Italian Chicken

The Menu:
Spicy Italian Chicken

The Original Recipe:
I found this on my favorite cooking site; Babycenter. I was confused about all the juice in the crockpot, and whether I should thicken it, or what I was going to do with it. I thought about adding cream cheese to it to melt and serve it over rice(which would of been delicious). However,  I decided to just add in 1 cup of instant rice to the crockpot, covered and turned it on warm for a few minutes to let the rice absorb. I turned off the crockpot, and it was done. An all in one dish ready to serve. I used fresh veggies, and I added some chicken broth powder for even more flavor.

Spicy Italian Chicken


1/2 cup Italian dressing

1 cup white wine

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp paprika

1 tsp chili powder

1/4 tsp cayenne

1 tbsp Italian dressing mix

1 lb chicken breasts

1 cup sliced carrots*

1 bag frozen broccoli*

*can use a bag of frozen mixed veggies instead

Combine ingredients through cayenne in slow cooker. Add chicken and coat. Add carrots top. Cook on low 4-5 hours. Add broccoli for last hour.
Cooks Notes: I added 1 cup instant white rice the last 10 minutes before eating.
